Dear poets, readers, and friends,

I’ve decided to close Clementine Unbound to further submissions. If you have work published here, the site and your work will continue to be available; in other words, the website will still exist but we won’t be accepting submissions.

This was a tough decision, but I finally realized that, in addition to a physical limitation that is making it harder and harder for me to create posts, I need a rest. (Clementine has existed in one form or another since 2015.)

Best of luck to you all. Go forth and make poems and do whatever you can to fight the forces of “Christian” nationalism and other evils that are destroying our beloved country. Above all, be kind to animals and our beautiful planet.

With appreciation for your submissions all these years,

G. F. Boyer, Editor
